Happy (debut) album release day, Echopark.
Singer-songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Antonio Forte is from the slow-paced, coastal surf town of Lecce, Italy (comparable to California’s Venice Beach). He started playing music when he was 5, gigging when he was 13, and later moved to London, where he home-recorded every track on Trees.
He did it piecemeal and out of one rented room; most of the songs are a series of clips woven together. Forte says it’s important for him to capture emotions and feelings as they happen, rather than by force and in one sitting. How Italian. 🙂
I love the video for his first single, Teleportation. Great drums too.
Forte is unsigned.
